In early June, Berlin Music TV conducted an interview with singer Brent Smith and drummer Barry Kerch of the Jacksonville, Florida-based hard rock/post-grunge band SHINEDOWN at the Rock Am Ring festival in Nürburgring, Germany. You can now watch the chat below.
SHINEDOWN‘s new album, “Amaryllis”, was released earlier this year and made a #1 chart debut on Billboard’s Rock Albums chart, and a #4 debut on The Billboard 200.
The CD’s first single, “Bully”, hit #1 at rock radio, marking SHINEDOWN‘s seventh consecutive chart-topper at the format.
Currently riding the success of second single, “Unity”, SHINEDOWN has released an alternate video for the song, this time featuring the bandmembers — vocalist Brent Smith, drummer Barry Kerch, guitarist Zach Myers, and bassist Eric Bass — as they were absent from the original clip.
“Amaryllis”, sold 106,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 4 on The Billboard 200 chart.
SHINEDOWN landed the biggest debut of its career in July 2008 when its third album, “The Sound Of Madness”, sold 50,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at No. 8 on the Billboard Top 200. This marked the first Top 10 album of the band’s career.
“Amaryllis” arrived in stores almost four years after the band issued “The Sound Of Madness”.
The million-selling “The Sound Of Madness” yielded six chart-topping singles like “Second Chance”, “Devour”, “If You Only Knew” and the title track. It debuted at No. 8 on the Billboard 200, spending 120 weeks on the album chart.
